During our current adoption paperwork I am constantly reminded that our little girl doesn’t have a full name. In all documents she is referred to as P* Unknown, or P* child. You see, like many, she was orphaned with no attached information, no clues to her history or beginnings. The fact is she was nameless.
The world may put names on children like this. They might be dubbed as:
Unwanted, Uncared For, Hopeless, Helpless, Street Rat, Trouble, Fatherless, Orphan.
But then I read this:
Before I was born the Lord called me; from my mother’s womb he has spoken my name.Isaiah 49:1
Yes, even though the fact is that she was nameless…the TRUTH is that God spoke her name before she was even born.
